Accommodation, Activities and Discovery in the Alpujarra Mountains of Granada, Southern Spain






See the BBC and Richard E. Grant at Las Chimeneas !  


Las Chimeneas is a dramatic set of converted village houses which have been welcoming guests to the Alpujarra since 1998. There are nine lovely rooms, each with fabulous views across the hills to the sea in the far distance. We provide very comfortable accommodation, with lots of antiques and books and hidden nooks and crannies, together with a delightful little restaurant that will surprise you by the quality of its freshly made seasonal produce.

We have a deep knowledge of the area and are anxious to share our enthusiasm for this place which has been our home for so long. We offer all kinds of holidays, including trekking, bird watching, cycling, painting, cookery and yoga. Of course we are also open for short stays for those wishing to come just for one or two nights.

Above all what we supply is peace and relaxation and a genuinely warm welcome. This represents a very winning combination. Perhaps it is this that led The Times to number us amongst their Top Ten in Europe's best mountain hideaways in the Summer of 2018.
